Swansea boss Laudrup: I wanted Everton's Lukaku

Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup admits he wanted to sign Everton striker Romelu Lukaku in the summer.

The Chelsea youngster ended up going to Everton on loan and he will take on Laudrup's men on Sunday.

Laudrup said: "We asked about him. I didn't call again because Chelsea said they wanted to keep him, but maybe I should have called again.

"He is a real talent. He is fast, can use both feet, he is strong, he is good in the air and is good on the counter-attack.

"He has been a huge signing for them."
